daily caller." why don't we have a joe biden action flick? you've seen him in the aviators, right? >> joe biden is a fascinating guy. but as a conservative, i would say why not the life story of marco rubio. a great story, rags to riches kind of story. and that's really the point here. i think whether you're worried about the democratic primary or whether you're worried about media bias, which is always an issue, there does seem to be a little favoritism here. >> let's get to that real quick. is this basically an admission by a lot of folks in tv that hillary clinton is going to run? >> absolutely. >> because obviously that will make all these productions more successful, right? >> for every hook there has to be a timely media hook. that's the hook and that's the backdrop. but then i don't think hillary clinton is that fascinating. but her story includes bill clinton and barack obama, then it becomes quite fascinating when you tie in the fact that she is going to run. we all know she's going to run. >> marisa, you obviously cover hollywood. a lot of this suggests that politics is

[ laughter ] >> governor huckabee: thank friday the labor department released the latest jobs figures. american employers added 162,000 jobs in the month of july. unemployment rate was lowered to 4 and a half year low to 7.4%. my first guest says those numbers just don't add up. the government figures don't really reveal the full truth about the job situation in america. joining me is the former head of the bureau of labor statistics, keith hall. keith, it's great to have you here today. [applause] >> good to be with you. >> well, friday, we got those new numbers. 7.6 to 7.4. what's not to love, keith? >> well, first of all, that unemployment rate is the most closely watched economic statistic there is. and, unfortunately, that's gotten to a very flawed statistic. the reason is to be included as in the unemployment race, you need fullback completely job
